So, we're getting spammed a bunch.

Per title. Is there anything sane we can do?

24h new account cooling off period? Require mod approval of new user accounts? Require a 2000 word new user essay on their favourite edition of their favourite game, and why all others are inferior trash?

Liam and I are working on it. So far your essay suggestion seems the most logical.

I've just updated the user registration security. Hopefully that sorts it out

So it seems I changed to email verification and it's not sending emails again which thankfully isn't a problem as there are 700 inactive accounts since I made the change. F*** stupid bots and useless security measures.

I need to update the forum version but it's been so long I'm reluctant to do it and lose all the styles and layouts...
